Good for them. Can they get rid of tips once they are done unionized?

They're unionizing at a place with two stores? For a job that is basically an after-school job you might have through college? Performative Drama Queens.

I'm legitimately confused by this comment, the implied vitriol, and its likes. The assumption that it's "just" an "after school job" is WHY we NEED UNIONS. And what is so wrong with treating "after school" workers with dignity and respect, anyway? Who exactly is getting hurt, here? Making inflmatory online comments is performative nonsense itself. Get a grip.

No reason for people working at small businesses not to band together to make sure that fair treatment and pay are codified in their contract. If this "basically an after-school job you might have through college" is so minor of a deal, it shouldn't be hard for the union to work with the store to find an agreement that's fair to everyone.
